Happy Monday, Miami. Enjoy what's new in town, from NaiYaRa's sushi doughnut and SuViche's revamped lunch and dinner menu, to Brew House Rock and a Matzoh Factory workshop.
The Features Menu at SuViche
Peruvian-Japanese restaurant SuViche has updated its menu with six new dishes available for lunch and dinner at all locations. Specialty sushi rolls include a sweet, savory, and spicy camote roll, made with torched sweet potato, fresh tuna, cucumber, and SuViche sauce; and the butcher’s roll, which features steak with a pinch of garlic cream cheese and lomo sauce. Larger dishes include the causa saltado — a crisp panko-breaded causa paired with chicken, shrimp, or steak — and the salmon nikkei, which stacks seared salmon on a bed of mixed quinoa and vegetables with a flavorful rocoto pepper vinaigrette.
Secret Off-Menu Sushi Doughnut at NaiYaRa
NaiYaRa, in Miami Beach's Sunset Harbour, has debuted the fashionable (and tasty) sensation. Swap sweet brioche dough for rice and seaweed formed into a doughnut shape and decorated with ingredients such as wasabi, ginger, avocado, and mayo. Created by NaiYaRa chef Danny Khoetchapalayook, each doughnut ($25) is made to order and must be requested, because it's not listed on the menu. Toppings range from salmon, tuna, and caviar to crisp rice balls, truffle flakes, and cashew mayo.
